My new nails!

I can't remember when I first started biting my nails, I seem to think it's something I've just always done. It's not a particularly nice habit, in fact it's downright dirty. One of the most horrifying moments in my life was going for a job interview in a trendy shop only to have to undergo a "hand inspection". Needless to say I didn't get the job and my nails were more bitten down than ever. I don't really know why I do it, but I do know that after a stressful day my nails always look savaged.

So after many years of having bitten-to-the-quick nails, I've finally invested in some acrylics in the hope of actually breaking the habit as I can't access my nails, and also making my nails look nice for a few weeks. I've even hd a few diamontes stuck on for added bling.

The only slight problem is that actually nails are a bit of a pain. I can no longer type properly, do up buttons, switch on lights, the list goes on. How do people manage with nails like this on a long term basis!?

They do look lovely for now, but part of me is looking forward to going back to normal, maybe biting my nails is just part of "me".

  1. They do look lovely though! I am the same in that I dont cope with nails longer than the ends of my fingers - I'm too clumsy so I just paint them and hope they look okay like that! Good luck ! Xx

  2. They look great, although I have to confess that I am not a fan of acrylic nails. I tried them once, they kept breaking on me so i had them removed. The acetone that they used dried out my own nails so much that they did nothing but crack split and peel for about 12 months after. I'm never going down the acrylic route again. I'm not a biter, although I do pick at the cuticles and skin around my nails, so I invest in good hand and nail cream and despite only having short nails, I still paint them etc in the hope that if they look semi-decent I will stop picking....

    1. Oh no! So do you think they will completely ruin my nails? They are pretty much ruined anyway but cracking and splitting does not sound attractive!
